New documentary on Julius Erving to air in June

NEW YORK (AP) — An upcoming documentary will look at the life and career of Julius Erving, on the 30th anniversary of his only NBA championship.

“The Doctor” will air on NBA TV on June 10, between games of the NBA Finals. The 90-minute program features rare footage from his ABA career. Dr. J later came to the NBA and helped the Philadelphia 76ers win the 1983 title.

One of basketball’s best-known high flyers, the Hall of Famer reflects on his high school days in New York. He ended up back on Long Island with the New York Nets of the ABA.

Miami Heat president Pat Riley says, “Unless you played against him or unless you watched him in his prime, you didn’t realize how great he was.”
